A friend and I had returned the day before from fighting the "run david" fire in the Sequoia National Forest. We were pleased, obviously, to be treated to FOTM. Front row in the balcony. Will never forget the two lines leading from casino--one for Dead the other for Wayne Newton. Freaks and Kansas City hardware salesmen sharing a rum and coke and pull on the slots.

Yea I was there and into coke at the time. Remember some babe falling into my lap , oh well. Small venue, sat in the first row in the back. So much fun when the band was playing this type of venue. Went to two shows in Vegas and then they went to the Silver Bowl, I believe. Long time ago. Oh well, don't smoke or do drugs now, long time passing. Still listen every day to th boys. Thank's All.

This is a great show. It's a very warm sounding audience recording of a nicely played show. Great atmosphere, nice clear sound, and extremely fine playing. Enjoy :)

That's what Weir said before Stranger. I have a good tape of this in storage which isn't cut or muffled etc. I was there and it certainly one the best or close to the best at least of the early Vegas shows ever, and it was to bad they tore this building down, since it had good acoustics, but then again that could also be said elsewhere !
The hotel, for those of you who may not know, was all in the same building ie. the band hung out, albeit breifly, with the audience at least this first time ! I went to the one here in '83 also, but not in '84. My rating is based on performance since I know a good sounding recording exists, sadly however at this point I'm not yet able to upload it, but I certainly wil ASAP it's 1st. gen.
